NVFC Membership Option

There is an NVFC membership option for North Carolina fire departments at a discounted rate.

When updating your department’s NCSFA roster online, we recommend you consider the option to join the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC).  We have a state dues program with NVFC.  Therefore, your NVFC membership is priced less and it provides a $10,000.00 Accidental Death and Disability insurance benefit with a double indemnity provision for line of duty injury deaths.
The cost for the NVFC benefit is $15.00 per rostered member annually.  Volunteer firefighters particularly benefit from the NVFC membership.  The NVFC represents your member’s legislative interest at the national level.  The higher the number of NVFC members, the more effective their voice is on Capitol Hill regarding issues such as tax deductions for volunteers.  Although the membership provides excellent benefits for the cost, gaining the additional level of advocacy nationally speaks volumes.  Municipal and career departments may join the NVFC.
You can pay for the NVFC dues at the same time you pay for your NCSFA dues, when you update your roster online.

Welcome New NCSFA Board and Staff Members

Effective December 1st, Dean Coward has officially resigned his position as Treasurer with the North Carolina State Firefighters’ Association to accept a full time position as Financial Director of the Association. Going from a volunteer role as Treasurer offers Dean insight into investing and managing our funds more frequently that can save and earn more dividends for our membership than ever before. It also greatly improves our capacity for fiscal review and management in an organization responsible for providing financial benefits and protection to our State’s fire service. Dean is a CPA, has extensive experience in the fire service, and knows the fiscal background and responsibilities of the Association in depth. We’re excited to have him joining our staff.

 

Effective December 1st, Jay Howell from Nahunta Fire will assume the responsibilities of Treasurer of the Association. Jay was appointed by the NCSFA Board, as indicated in the bylaws,  to serve as Interim Treasurer until next year’s Annual Conference when the membership will be responsible for electing a new Treasurer. Jay has extensive history in the fire service as a firefighter, Chief, and served as President of the NC Association of Fire Chief’s. Jay’s extensive background and experience will serve the Association membership well moving forward.

 

Please join the NCSFA Board and staff in welcoming both Dean and Jay.
